Bush Lake...Bloomington

15 posts in this topic

Anyone having any luck out there? Havent seen much for pressure on this lake this winter...anything worthwhile in there during the winter?

I drive by this lake every morning and afternoon and there has only been a max of 3 houses/portables there at one time.

I drove by there a little less than a month ago and it was crazy there was vehicles and portables everywhere. I've heard of crappies coming out of the weeds in 12-18fow. Other than that dont know much about the lake.

I was out there last weekend in the extreme cold. Marked fish but no takers. The lake is completely safe for driving.

I have been out there a few times without much luck, caught alot of small stuff, nothing worth keeping. (Caught a 24in pike on 2lb test though, that was pretty fun!!) I have caught some decent gills and crappies in the past, but haven't been able to get into them this year. Not a ton of them, but a few here and there if you work for them.

I was out there about a month ago on a Sunday and it was a zoo. Not the funnest day!

Bush was crowded this morning when I went by, they must be biting. A friend of mine said the other day he did pretty good on the crappies in shalow weeds in the evening.

Are we talking about the same lake? The one between east bush lake rd and west bush lake rd? crazy.gif I drove by saturday morning as well (10am) and it was a ghost town. 2 houses out there...not a single vehicle.

I cut 3 holes this morning: at least 30" of ice, but no fish for my efforts.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
